What a joy it was to photograph these shoes! Vibrant colors and perfect details made the shoes shine in all their beauty in just about every photo. Mukishoes for kids are just flawless in every aspect.
I love how much time Muki put into details when creating these shoes for kids. Not only that every detail on the shoe is perfected to perfection, also their shoe box is designed to be especially appealing to kids eyes (well, I must admit that to mine too).
The black circles that are the trademark of the Mukishoes brand have now become small black pirate balls sitting on the box and looking at you with their cute little eyes. For the first time, my kids also remembered the shoe box.

2. Material characteristics
Mukishoes Kids ankle high models are available in 4 different colours and materials.
The Creek model, which you can see on the photo below, is made from chrome-free leather upper in a rich deep blue colour. The leather is butterly soft and this blue colour is just wow. I definitely wouldn’t mind having the same colour for myself too.
Mini Moss, which my oldest son has, is the kids version of their popular Moss model. It is the same colour as the adult model with an extra bonus – rainbow coloured eyelets, which makes shoes perfect for kids. My 8-year old is all about green colour, so this is the perfect shoe for him.
Elastic laces are in bright orange colour. Toggle slides very easily and kids won’t have any problems using them.
And just look at this cute little Muki logo on the top of the tongue.
The pull loops in blue colour are big and strong. Kids will easily put their fingers inside and use them to put on the shoe easily.
Creek model is lined with burel wool in vivid orange colour ‘sourced from Portugal’s highest mountains’.
The lining is also on the sole, but for wearing them in the winter, I would recommend adding an extra wool insole in them. Without the insole, they are perfect shoes for autumn, early spring and milder winter days.
Mini Moss is lined with ‘soft, patterned cotton flannel’. This model also has an integrated water repellent TEX membrane, which makes them suitable to wear also on rainy days.
I would recommend Mini Moss as a shoe for autumn and spring.
Creek model don’t have water repellent TEX membrane, but leather is water-repellent by nature anyway.
I love the new Mukishoes sole. It is stunning. Only 2.5 mm thick sole, made from natural rubber gives you an amazing ground feeling. I have the same sole in my Muki models and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.
Just look how effortlessly they can be rolled. My hand is so relaxed, like I’m not holding anything.
Also check my video for the close-up and to see how they look on my son’s feet.
3. Sizing information
Mukishoes for kids are available in sizes 24-35. My sons wear sizes 26 and 35.
My older son’s feet are currently 22 cm long and I chose their biggest kids size 35 with internal length 23.2 cm. This means 12 mm space for him.
This is just an ideal length for him now, but if you plan to order them for your kids, choose more space than that, because kids’ feet grow and my son’s feet already grow since we got them for testing for 3 mm.
See my post How much space do we need in shoes if you want to know more about that.
My youngest son’s feet are currently 16.2 cm long and he wears size 26 with internal length 17.8 cm. This means 16 mm space inside the shoe. His feet haven’t grown much since autumn and this was the perfect size for him. He can walk in them with no problem.
3.2. Toebox shape & width
Mukishoes toebox in their kids collection has slightly different shape than in their adult models. While their adult toebox shape is more rounded, kids model have very square shaped form.
Both of my sons have big toes and the 2nd toe is almost the same length and the shape is a very good match for their feet.
Muki shoes for kids can suit a lot of different foot types, but if you kids have a very strong slope toward the little toe, they won’t be an ideal fit for them.
More about different foot types you can read in my post What is my Foot Type?
Regarding the width they fit well to medium and wide feet. According to Bosonožka measurement with Clevermess the internal width of size 26 is 72 mm and the internal width of size 35 is 88 mm.
My youngest son’s feet are 6,9 cm wide which means 3 mm space for him and my oldest son’s feet are 8.4 cm wide, which means 4 mm space for him.
3.3. Fit around the instep, heel and ankle
Muki shoes for kids fit the best to kids with low and normal height instep, skinny ankles and narrow heels.
My kids have all this and they have a very good fit in Muki shoes, but if your kids have wider ankles and heels, higher instep and generally feet with more volume, those shoes won’t be the best fit for them.
My sons confirmed to me that those shoes are fantastic to wear. Very soft and pleasant on their feet.
My oldest son also likes that he can put them on very easily. The younger son needs a little help putting on his shoes because the laces in smaller sizes are a little harder to untie.
5. How and when to wear them?
Mukishoes Creek and Mini Moss are such versatile shoes that kids will be able to wear them just with anything.
If your kids will wear them in dirt, Creek model is easier to clean, but with Mini Moss I recommend using a brush first to remove most of the dry dirt.
6. Price & where to buy
Mukishoes for kids can be bought at the official Mukishoes website.
Price for the Creek model is 90 € and for Mini Moss 85 €.
